1965 Ford Falcon Futura 302 No Rust Straight Car on 2040-cars
Siletz, Oregon, United States
1965 Ford Falcon Futura. This is a straight Falcon purchased in Reno, NV. Dave was told by previous owner that it was the owner of circus-circus's car originally (no documentation though), and that he's the third owner. I believe this car has been garaged its whole life. I can say with certainty that it's been garaged the last 8 years.Dave built this car for speed, and was only allowed one pass at the Woodburn Oregon drag strip. It ran in the 10's and was told to get it back on the trailer until I put a roll cage in.
OK, Let's start with the engine. It has a 302 bored .30 over, trick flow iron heads, headers, 9 qt. Moroso oil pan, Weiand dual plane manifold, holley 650 cfm carb, Mallory distributor and wires, Earls fittings, hoses, and filter, x-system exhaust with supertrapps, driveshaft loop, three speed automatic transmission with B&M ratchet shifter, 4.56 gears with limited slip, and an eight inch rear end.It has heavy duty springs, traction bars, and battery mounted in trunk.
The interior has stock headliner and rear seat in good shape for age. The front is two racing bucket seats with 4 pt. harness. It has after market guages mounted underneath the dash (check pics) no radio installed
The exterior is rust free, and the body is pretty straight. (Once again, check pics) We tried to point out little flaws, but they're hard to see in the pics.The door locks, and the antenna are missing, as you can see in the pics. The tires have 95% of the tread left.
Extras included with the car are straight rust free front left and right fenders, stock hood, and stock rear end.
The car has a clear title. The only other item I've sold worth more than a couple hundred bucks, was Dave's 1940 Indian motorcycle a couple years ago. So, he told me he'd be willing to do a no reserve with low starting price. The car is for sale locally, so I reserve the right to end the auction early. Dave did say, that if a bid is in, he'll honor it, and not end the auction. At end of auction 500.00 paypal deposit required, and we can make pick up or shipping arrangements. Any questions, and I won't be surprised if there are some, call Dave at 541-270-7699. You may have to leave message, but he'll get back to you. You can ask questions here, and if I can't answer, I'll get the answer from Dave. This is a nice car that won't disappoint. Odometer says almost 70,000, but may, or may not be correct.

Bill Ford went on the offensive to combat the rumors that CEO Alan Mulally would leave Dearborn for Steve Ballmer's vacated position leading Microsoft, adding that even if the 68-year-old, former Boeing exec were to depart, the Ford executive team is in a good place.
"I'm happy [Mulally] is going to stick around. But we also feel really good about where we are in terms of succession," Ford told Bloomberg TV, according to Automotive News. Rumors first cropped up about Mulally leaving Ford when AllThingsD speculated that he was in the running, early last month. In that same report, which you can read here, Ford's board of directors reportedly okayed the CEO stepping down ahead of his planned retirement in 2014.
That opened the floodgates, culminating in a report from a few days ago that the rumors over Ballmer's successor just might be true. The story is especially troubling, as Ford hasn't had Mulally under contract, according to AN. "He's here as long as he and I would like it to happen," Ford said, "We're also cognizant of training the next generation and getting them ready to go as well."
Seven-figure Ferraris are not horribly rare. Heck, an eight-figure Ferrari isn't a rare occurrence. Between modern masterpieces like the Enzo and more classic offerings, cracking the million-dollar mark isn't a particularly tall order for the cars from Maranello. For a Ford, though, it's a big deal.
Now, this is not just some rare Mustang. This is a GT40, the car that Henry Ford II commissioned to whip Enzo Ferrari around a track in France. As far as the Le Mans-winning racers go, they don't get much rarer than this one. Sold at the Mecum Auctions in Houston, this is one of the prototypes, meaning it's one of the very first GT40s ever built. That makes its $7 million winning a bid, a record for on-air coverage of the auction, a pretty darn impressive figure.
You can watch the auction below, but first, take a look back at our original story on this rare Blue Oval.
Yesterday, the Ford Mustang turned 49 years old, and Ford didn't miss the opportunity to celebrate the one millionth version of the Mustang rolling off the assembly line at the Flat Rock Assembly plant. Production of the Mustang at Flat Rock coincided with the fifth-generation design launching in 2004, and the one millionth car was the car shown above, a 2014 GT convertible painted in Ruby Red.
In total, Ford has sold more than 8.5 million Mustangs since the original car went on sale, but some of the key milestones over the car's nine years at Flat Rock include the Shelby GT-H, Bullitt, Boss 302 and, of course, the 662-horsepower Shelby GT500.
